I am 32 and looking for a relaxing vacation destination in the U.S.  I googled vacations for single guys, but everything revolves around partying and getting laid.  That sounds nice, but I'm just looking to relax and get away from work.  I will be going by myself.

Go backpacking.
Hawaii sucks for singles.  You end up paying more for everything and it is hard to meet singles who aren't scamming or just outright whores of both sexes.  Unless you know someone who lives and works there and can introduce you, there is no chance of meeting locals. 
Well, you can make fun, but you have to do it alone.  Even when you're with a group most will be couples and so they tend to be stand offish with singles.
Amsterdam, Hamburg and then onto Bangkok.
Naughty.
I'm not wanting to meet anyone.  I'm just looking to a vacation spot that has some things to do, but also a great place to relax.  Maybe the beach or the mountains?  Just thought someone might have been some place lately that they really enjoyed.
take a camp-like course in, well, just about anything.....my personal favorite is sailing......you get to relax, but also háve to meet people (not just singles or whatever), and learn a manly skill in the process.....
A place to go and not worry about being single, I would say Taos New Mexico. Lots to do and see and the prices are good. Good place to encounter several different cultures too. One thing though, cash on hand will do you better than a credit card, many street venders who will haggle on prices for leather goods, jewelry and preserved foods. Night life starts around eight but don’t stay much past midnight, as it can get rough if you don’t know your way around town. Sundays are dead in town so plan on hiking or something then. A solid 9/10 in my book.

Rent one of the remote Forest Service cabins here in south-east Alaska.  Fish if you feel like it. 

 

Wherever the hell you want too. 

 There is no rule that says you have to drink yourself under the table and chase girls, regardless of where you go. 

If you're into history look at some type of a civil war tour. If you like the outdoors, how about a guided fishing or hunting trip? If you like to shoot, consider a week long shooting school like the ones run by Gunsite or Thunder Ranch. Get a good map and drive what's left of Route 66. Do the Air Force Museum in Dayton or the Henry Ford museum in Detroit. Being single means that you don't have to listen to the sighs and watch the eyes roll when you look at old cars or old airplanes or old guns. 

 

Momma and I just celebrated our 35th anniversary. We love each other and enjoy each other's company but some of the best times in my life have been when I could drive to deer camp with my rifle behind the seat of the pickup - and if I wanted to stop and do a museum on the way I had nobody to answer to but myself. A couple of years ago I did the Route 66 run from Joplin MO out to Tucumcari NM. Just me and my pickup and some old time radio CDs to keep me company. There was no schedule and no real destination. My goal was making the journey.

 

Make the journey.   

Any vacation package you'll see from a google search is probably geared to couples and families. Ask around. Maybe you can rent a cottage somewhere remote. The less frills (power, cable, phones, etc), the less likely you'll be bothered by others.
